Project Description

Board and Batten 12″ Sidings – Product Information


The Better Than Logs™ Board and Batten 12″ Concrete Sidings are one of our newest additions. The Board and Batten 12″ (BB12) is developed from REAL Montana harvested wood. The grains are authentic and not mechanically forged.

Board and Batten Sidings are historically represented throughout the world, and have a charming, classic look.  BB12 works wonderfully as a main siding option as well as an option for dormer and gable sidings.

All Better Than Logs™ Board and Batten 12” Concrete Sidings have three forms of internal bracing:

  • Polyiso Insulation Board laminated into the back of each board
  • Three layers of fiberglass roving cloth throughout the boards

These engineering factors create a very strong and stable concrete panel. We have seven color offerings: Grey Weathered Wood, Natural, Golden Brown, Light Brown, Classic Brown, Weathered Wood, and Dark Brown. All sidings and trims are suitable for interior and exterior applications. All products ship stained and ready for installation, with no surface sealants required.

Corner Options for the Better Than Logs™ Board and Batten 12″ Siding includes:

  • Straight Trim: resembles vertical 2″ x 4″ (CTS4), 2″ x 6″ (CTS6) and 2″ x 8″ (CTS8) trim boards
  • Window and Door Trims include: -2″ x 4″ (CTS4), 2″ x 6″ (CTS6) and 2″ x 8″ (CTS8)

No chinking with BB12 family.

All Better Than Logs Concrete Log Siding Colors have complimentary color matched Sealant.

Product installation is very simple. All boards are to be drilled and screwed in place on the structure. The Trims are installed first, then the main Siding boards are installed. The sealant is used throughout the installation for weatherproofing. Once the installation is complete, the major joints are sealed, chinked, and finished. No chinking with BB12 family.

We also have access to experienced and trustworthy Contractors, Builders, and Installers in many areas of the country that can accomplish the installation if preferred.

Typical product lead time is 8-12 weeks, shorter if we have available inventory.

For the installation, we offer color matched BTL Sealant Caulking (5 colors) and BTL Installation Hardware. A great deal of engineering design, manufacturing materials, and manufacturing labor initially go into our products so that you, the customer, are required to do little to no maintenance on your exterior siding for the life of your home.

Additionally, Better Than Logs™ products include a “Limited Lifetime Warranty” on our product’s structure and coloring. Our warranty ensures that your project will continue to look great for many years to come.

We manufacture, sell and ship directly from the factory in Drummond, Montana. We can ship throughout the continental USA and the world. We do send out samples of our BB12 products.
